Idol Minor

Good evening,

People have been asking when the next season of LJ Idol is happening... and I've been all over the place with it, but have finally been locking some important details down, so I should be able to make an announcement about that in a month or so...

In the meantime, I DO have an announcement about Idol Minor (the kids mini season).

It WILL be happening.


Kids old enough to tell a story to 12 year olds are invited to participate.

We had one of these before and honestly, it was one of my favorite experiences. I really hope that even grownups without young kids stick around to check out the work and encourage the next generation of writers, because if it's anything like the last time, you will be in for a treat!

May 1st is the start date. I was going to do it in April, but that got away from me, and I want to give people enough time to spread the word and tell their friends about it!

I have something in mind that I'm still working out the details on to make things extra special, but we will see what becomes of that idea over the next month. :)

What a fun idea! I’m looking forward to reading entries!

Yeah, me too!

The first season was one of my personal favorite things I've ever done. I'm hoping this second season will be as good, or even better!

"Yay" indeed.

That's how I'm feeling at the moment... spread the word!

Can a twelve-year-old participate, or no?
Mar. 26th, 2018 08:57 am (UTC)
Absolutely they can. 12 is the "max age" for Idol Minor.

Yes! Thank you. I'm going to pass this on to "my" twelve-year-old. Really looking forward to seeing and reading some old, young friends again.

This is a great idea, and I look forward to the stories. If only I could wind my clock back to 12 . . . . Perhaps a story of "The Selfie of Dorian Gray" as a 6th grader.

Are you sending any new writers over? ;)

Yeah, one of the things that I like about this kid's season is that it goes to the heart of why I created Idol, it was something that I *wished* had existed so that I could play it! :)

I would have loved this as a kid, and I hope other kids will feel the same way!

My 7 year old wants to be a writer when he grows up and loves writing so many things. I'm going to see if he'll be interested in doing this. May sounds like it could be a good month for us.

I'm REALLY excited to read his stuff! Hopefully you can convince him.

I will ask him when I get him from school today. :D

Oh my gosh, I'm so excited about this! Yay kid writers!!

My two nine year olds are psyched! May should be a really good month for us to participate, too.
